The meaning of 1 million executive assessments
Korn/Ferry recently announced that we have assessed more than 1 million executives worldwide. With our multiple assessment systems—including 360-degree job performance assessments, self assessments of work behavior, leadership competencies, and learning agility—Korn/Ferry has amassed valuable data about business leaders.
Why does reaching that quantity matter?
Though assessment results are very valuable on an individual and organizational level, owning a huge global database of more than 1 million assessments allows us to dive deep. We can analyze and predict executive success (or derailment) across function, level, company, industry, or geography. Our database provides a lens through which we can identify talent trends, examine the mechanics of leadership suited to different contexts, and sift through the essential ingredients behind fit and success.
The size of our database is impressive, but more importantly, the caliber of people we’ve assessed is unmatched. Assessments are everywhere, but executive assessments are rare. Through our outstanding client relationships, we have assessed some of the world’s most influential business leaders. This gives Korn/Ferry a rare and highly valued glimpse into the distinct characteristics that define great leadership.
This combination of quantity and quality is what differentiates Korn/Ferry’s talent assessment capacity. Most importantly, it allows us to pass key insights and cutting-edge findings through to our clients.
